I am considering buying a Toshiba 32WL56 rather than the '58' model as I don't want a built in Freeview tuner. What is the purpose of having the tuner built in as you still need another external tuner to make off-air, unattended recordings to a VCR, say. Obviously the day will come when the TV will need to have a tuner (digital) when the analogue signal is axed, but I'd rather have an LCD TV with just the old analogue tuner and choose the quality and type of Freeview tuner to go with it and which can then be used to supply a signal to my VCR, or whatever. After all does the built in Freeview tuner have the facilitly for making off-air recordings. Does it have an events timer etc. How would the TV switch its tuner on to output the necessary channel to the VCR etc? So many questions! Unlike a lot of you on this forum, I don't want an LCD TV for using games consoles or connecting my PC to it or watching future HD Sky inputs etc. etc. I just want to watch SD tuner input and possibly buy a DVD recorder with a built in Freeview tuner eventually, when the prices tumble a bit more, say next year.
